I had the privilege of serving Anne’s photography needs for a Corporate Headshot to be used for her new business. During our initial phone consultation she mentioned that her office was located at her home so I suggested we do an environmental shot using her work area as the background. We also talked briefly about wardrobe and I suggested that she prepare a few.
I believe in giving clients all the support, visual aids, tips and advice prior to a shoot. It builds confidence and makes the session run a lot smoother. So a few days before the session, I sent Anne a PDF file containing a few corporate-type posing suggestions that she can practice.
On the day of the shoot, we did a little bit of rearranging to show more of Anne’s professional achievements in the background.
Granted, the certificates of achievements may be out of focus on the final shots but I think we were successful in telling her “story”… that she is a pro!
I also set up a black backdrop in one section of her house for some plain background shots. I love this one particularly… I got a “SQUINCH”!
Finally, she had this lovely, lovely room that I couldn’t pass up so I asked Anne if we could do a shot in there as well. I was so glad she obliged.
Thank you, Anne for the opportunity and I wish you all the luck on your new endeavor!
